- Getting started with Andrew File System and OpenAFS

Welcome to Here you will find basic documentation about setting up your computer to work with AFS (Andrew File System), a network based file system, accessible from anywhere in the world.

In more popular buzz word terms an OpenAFS setup is also known as “the cloud” or “cloud storage” because of the distributed nature of AFS :)
See the navigation guide to the left for instruction on how to set up your client.

New to AFS? See What is AFS.

If you are a system administrator and want to deploy your own OpenAFS server infrastructure, a guide for doing just that is also available on this site.

This site is intended to serve as a supplement to the official OpenAFS website: See more on the About page.
